Windows 8.1 Performance

  • FIX: Process optimisations freeing system resources for your other applications.

Magnification Stability

  • FIX: Truefonts. Colour mouse cursors now drawn as expected on Windows 7 even if TrueFonts off, enlarged pointer is off and the pointer contains inverted pixels.
  • FIX: Truefonts. Screen no longer appears corrupt when you move the mouse over mixed symbols and text in some situations.
  • FIX: Truefonts. Certain symbol characters were being drawn in the wrong colour.


  • FIX: Solved a problem where some applications could crash when closing SuperNova.
